Unplanned and poorly managed urban development leads to increasing inequality, growing poverty, and disastrous impacts on the environment. Cities and metropolitan areas account for around 70% of global carbon emissions and more than 60% of resource use. This day seeks to raise awareness about the urgent need to promote and act for a #GreenEquality that makes cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable places.
